Morgan Spurlock; Professional Director or Supersized Actor?

Morgan Spurlock; actor or serious director? Well, one thingís for sure, the whole serious bit is not for Morgan! His performance at Seton Hill was extremely entertaining and for a guy like myself, who at least attempts to eat right, it was also informative and very interesting. What it was not was professional, unless youíre going for professional comedian. Profanity flowed freely from the stage and the audience roared with laughter a couple of notable times. The missing ingredient for me, however, was an objective other side. Now, Mr. Spurlock had an axe to grind, and we all knew that ahead of time, because most of us watched the documentary, Supersize Me, however, his persuasion did seem the type most commonly displayed on the playground, utterly one sided. Everything McDonalds was ridiculed and even the infamous Big Mac Man from the movie (a tidbit of objectivity here since the Hippie looking Don Gorske was rather slim) was left out of the nightís presentation. Lastly, Louís question was never really answered to his satisfaction, a pat, ďitís in the book, and know Iím moving alongĒ was all he got. Oh well, it was definitely entertainment at its best, although Iím not at all sure that it all got through to me, because afterwards I took Kyra out to eat at Arbys!

Conservative: resistant to change, opposed to liberal reforms, avoiding excess...

KickDonkey.gifThe title is how Princeton's Webnet defines "conservative." I confess it was the definition I liked the best.

I found this quiz on Lou's blog and decided to play along. I would just like to say to Lou... Bro, I'm a right-wing blood conservative, unashamedly born-again radical evangelical Jesus-loving Christian, and I like you very much. I do not dislike "liberals" although I tend to disagree with the majority of their ideas and I refuse to lump everyone together. I think your rantings are quite humorous... you should hear me some time.
